    Abstract [en]

    Physical inactivity is the fourth leading risk factor for global mortality. To prevent and change this the society need to develop good approaches and interventions to promote physical activity. The purpose of this thesis was to investigate which experience existing users have of smartphone training applications. Also to study if this can be a possible resource for health promotion. Six active users applied to participation after they had seen an ad in social media. The participants were interviewed with semi-structured interview. The result of the study showed that it is common that the use of the application is mainly for fun, and that the application´s visual documentation contributes to increased motivation to be physically active. The users also enjoy recording the physical activity and to collect all the activities at the same place makes it easy to go back and evaluate and compare the training results. The conclusion was that the use of these training applications can be seen as a free and accessible tool and can be a future tool in health promotion to provide greater motivation to be physical active. In order to ensure that the use of training applications contributes to increased physical activity, further studies are needed such as a randomized control study with larger sample groups and a longer period of study.
